Quilt Top Notes/Techniques

Leaf block based on traditional design and 9″ finished.

I used the Missouri Quilt Company’s technique for half square triangles by sewing around two squares and used the formula covered here. I calculated 5.5″ squares for 3.5″ HST’s, but rounded up to 6″ so I could trim them down to size exactly.

Quilting Notes/Techniques

I used Mettler Polysheen for the leaf vein free motion quilting, and Gutterman 50wt cotton for the other FMQ.
